It's so dumb that these deals exclude the digital versions of most of the games. Like, they're gonna charge $50 for a game that has to be written to a disc, packaged up, and shipped to your house, but to have a code emailed to you it's $60. They're excluding basically everyone getting an Xbox Series S from these deals.

Also, the fact that Call of Duty is charging more for their Series X optimized game while everyone else is doing Smart Delivery is dumb. I get they probably had to put a bunch of overtime in to make it happen at launch, but they're going to get sales through the roof anyway.

Rant over... anyway I won't be taking advantage of this simply due to buying a Series S and saving the planet.

PSA: For those not tied to Best Buy, Amazon sometimes will price the XB1/PS4 vanilla versions at $50, giving you $10 cash saved now vs $10 in Best Buy rewards usable only at BB and not deposited until after you've received/picked up the game. For instance, currently the vanilla versions of AC Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legions, and Far Cry 6 are all showing as $50 on Amazon. Just a heads up.

Do you or anyone know if they will do a midnight release? I may pay the extra $10 just to be able to start playing Wednesday at 9PM. I live in the PNW and if you buy from GOG it goes live 12am EST which is 9pm for me.

EDIT I live chatted to ask and they said no midnight release and I live in a pretty popular area. Bummer, the steel case would be sweet, and the $10 credit but getting to play at 9pm Wednesday might be too much to pass up.

Does anyone happen to know if pre-ordered games from Best Buy arrive on release date typically? I want to order Cold War, however Best Buy's website says "Ships by Release Date, Fri, Nov 13". Curious if anyone has personal experience with pre-orders like this from Best Buy. How soon after do you generally receive rewards? Thanks.

If you do store pickup, you get it on same day. I did notice the shipment option wasn't the release date.

Thanks. For anyone else wondering, the game did not arrive on release day. Ordered from Amazon, and returned the Best Buy copy.
